At Bigelow Tea, we are always creating new blends that cater to the demands of our tea family, you! With the recent focus on supporting mental and physical well-being, we have expanded our beloved Signature line with one new black tea and two new herbal teas to feature ingredients and nutrients that provide a healthy choice with every beautiful cup.
Let’s dive into these new and exciting flavors to understand how they may benefit your healthy lifestyle.
NEW! Peak Energy™ Black Tea plus extra L-Theanine and Caffeine
L-theanine is an amino acid found naturally in Camellia sinensis tea leaves (learn more here about Camellia sinensis tea leaves). A 2021 study says L-theanine may work synergistically with caffeine to benefit the brain and mood by increasing mental alertness. With that, we are proud to present Bigelow Peak Energy™ Black Tea plus extra L-Theanine and Caffeine. Outside of enjoying this robust black tea, the combination of the added L-theanine and caffeine could provide a functional benefit that may allow for a sharpened focus while bringing mental clarity which is perfect for a morning or midday pick-me-up minus the jitters that may accompany coffee alone. It’s a Get-Ready-To-Take-On-The-Day kind of tea!
NEW! Whispering Wildflowers™ Herbal Tea plus L-Theanine
This beautiful caffeine-free herbal tea is truly a sensorial experience. Bigelow Whispering Wildflowers™ Herbal Tea plus L-theanine, both the name and imagery, evoke a serene meadow of wildflowers swaying gently in the breeze. The color is a bright rosy purple, and the taste is a delicate floral blend of lavender, rose, passionflower, and butterfly pea flower that finishes with a hint of sweetness. L-Theanine, not found in herbal teas, has been added to florals, long known for their tranquil properties, to create a comforting cup of tea that not only helps reduce stress but also provides a quiet moment of relaxation.
Many consumers enjoy tea as a part of their self-care routine. A 2020 study shows L-theanine can promote a calming effect that may boost mood and help to manage stress and anxiety. Supporting both physical and mental-wellbeing, each cup can help you relax from day to evening. Each delicious sip can help guide you to a moment of tranquility and stillness, a moment just for you.
NEW! Ginger Honey Herbal Tea plus Zinc
Expanding on the success of Bigelow Blackberry Citrus plus Zinc herbal tea, a blend valued for its much sought after ingredients, health-conscious consumers will be eager to discover Bigelow Ginger Honey Herbal Tea plus Zinc which is a spicy, zesty, ginger forward caffeine free herbal tea with a subtle sweet honey flavor.
Ginger is a much sought after ingredient that continues to capture the interest of health-conscious consumers. Studies say the aromatic spice may soothe your stomach if you are suffering from indigestion or nausea with additional studies saying it could help immune health thanks to its anti-inflammatory properties. Zinc, a trace mineral and essential nutrient also found in this special tea, is said by one study to help with healing. With every cup, tea drinkers will be able to embrace a healthy lifestyle.
As third generation president and CEO, Cindi Bigelow shares, “I am excited to announce the expansion of the Bigelow Tea Signature Line with three new teas that provide not only uncompromising exceptional flavor our consumers have grown to rely on, but also include ingredients and nutrients with functional benefits that help support a healthy lifestyle. I hope you are as excited as I am when enjoying each new beautiful cup of tea.”
